A few years back, my mother gave me a top that she no longer wanted. It was white (not really a colour I wear a lot) and had some sparkling details on the side (OMG...) but it was comfy and I was cold so I kept it. And for years I've been wearing said top at home to veg. Until it became so dirty that I just couldnt get the stains out anymore. Dont ask me what it was that made it so dirty but all the washing in the world didnt help... I was about to throw it away when I thought I could fix these stains in another way :)
Remember the Halloween tea towels? I am keeping all my Halloween fabrics for the Halloween quilt (that I really must start one day, it's been 3 years and counting...) but I had a few small pieces leftover from the towels. So I just covered the stains :) Well, the worst of them anyway... So now I can wear this top again and look cool to boot. What do you think?
The worst stains were near the neckline where the big patch is (it's a teensy bit crooked) but I doubt anyone will notice...
I added one patch on each sleeve and also one to cover the sparkly bit. The other sleeve not shown here has the candy corn patch as well.
I like it :) And it now matched my PJ pants also. Taadaa, a whole new set for free :)
Should anyone have any tips to get the remaining stains out other than bleech please feel free to share... I might be able to have it 100% clean one day *grin*
Oh yes I nearly forgot... I have been working on a very cool project but it's taking a little longer to dry than planned. Hopefully pics will come soon!
